Former First Lady Melania Trump was scheduled for an appearance at a naturalization ceremony and it has been labeled as a “distraction” from the Trump family’s true “reality” as per one of her former aides, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff.
It was announced on Monday that Melania Trump will speak at a naturalization ceremony that “will see 25 people from 25 nations sworn in as new U.S. citizens,” according to the National Archives website. The National Archives is hosting the event as part of its annual celebration of Bill of Rights Day on December 15.
Winston Wolkoff took to X, formerly Twitter, on Wednesday to take aim at her former boss after the news broke of Melania Trump’s appearance at the event. Wolkoff served as “a special government employee” to Trump early in former President Donald Trump’s presidency.
“The hypocrisy of Melania Trump hosting a naturalization event at the National Archives (where Donald is under investigation) is right up there with her so-called Be Best anti-bullying platform (where Donald is Bully #1). This is a strategic move on Donald & Melania’s part,” Wolkoff wrote.
It seems that Wolkoff was referring to when the National Archives asked the Department of Justice (DOJ) in February 2022 to investigate Donald Trump’s alleged handling of government records.
The former president has pleaded not guilty to 40 charges over allegations he illegally retained sensitive materials at his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida after he left the White House in January 2021 and obstructed the federal attempt to retrieve them.
